Ben Affleck Explains Why 'Justice League' Was More Fun Than 'Batman v. Superman'

In the aftermath of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (which gave us the Sad Affleck meme), the level of fun was much higher for the Batman actor Ben Affleck when working on Justice League. 

Affleck opened up about his latest efforts as Batman in Justice League while speaking to Access Hollywood, sitting beside his co-stars Jason Momoa and Ray Fisher. As it turns out, they are a part of the reason he had so much fun at work this time around.

"Everybody got along and I think it comes across in the movie. You see the comradery of this group. You root for them to come together and a part of that is we all genuinely like each other," Affleck said. "It was much more fun than the last movie because I had all these people to play with!"

Fisher sings a similar tune, though his part in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was merely a cameo role in which he only appeared with Silas Stone actor Joe Morton. "I felt the fun for sure," Fisher said. "The last one, we had just the little bits you saw in Batman v Superman. But, it was fun just to be able to explore and team build. There was never a dull moment on set."

Still, don't expect to see too much smiling from Affleck's Bruce Wayne or Fisher's Victor Stone as they are burdened with saving the world from Steppenwolf's invasion.

Justice League hits theaters on November 17, 2017.
